The Rotary Club of Cowra (New South Wales, Australia – D 9700) are excited to announce that they will be holding a Careers Afternoon on Thursday, October 25, 2018 from 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm at the Cowra Bowling Club.

The idea of Club President Bill Murphy was to gather as many local representatives from all fields and invite students from years 9, 10 and 11 from both Cowra High School and St Raphael’s High School to attend.

“We plan to have a table with as many representatives from as many different jobs in Cowra that we can find,” Mr Murphy said.

“Some of these representatives will use the afternoon to link up with students who may be looking for jobs.”

We have contacted a number of local businesses and have received positive feedback from employers.

At this stage we have confirmed there will be an electrician, a sign writer, a bricklayer, an IT specialist, a real estate agent, a plumber, a plasterer, a pharmacist and accountant and a representative from Cowra Hospital and Bilyara Nursing Home.

Cowra Shire Council representatives will also be in attendance.

They have traineeships on offer and a Motor Mechanic’s apprenticeship available.

The electrician we have engaged is also looking for an apprentice.

TAFE Western will have representatives with 2019 course information.

So if you are an employer who would like to be involved or a student who would like to find out more about a profession please let President Bill Murphy know by calling 6342 1311 for more information.

Donates freezer to Food Hall

The Rotary Club of Cowra have used some of the profits from fundraisers to donate a new freezer recently to the Cowra Uniting Church Food Hall.

Rotary members made the donation and Kathryn Tindall from the Food Hall committee said the group was very appreciative.

“Absolutely over the moon, it is going to be so helpful for us,” she said.

“Already we’ve been able to accept a donation of frozen bread from someone in the community… and now we will be able to source frozen goods from Sydney and a variety of food, frozen vegetables, frozen meat.”

She said demand is growing.

“Our numbers are growing, a couple of weeks ago we had six new registrations in one day,” Kathryn said.

Cowra Rotary member Ian Wright said he’s been seen the good work done by the Food Hall for the past four years.

“I’ve got to know what goes on, I think it is a very worthy cause,” he said.

“It was very badly needed.”
